While I did try to write about the beauty products I’ve used up, at some point I’ve got annoyed, as having a huge bag of empty bottles at home was not cool. But I’ve started posting what new products I get to replace some of those I’ve used up over at my Instagram
However, I do want to share my makeup empties. And, considering how many products I actually have, finishing even one is kind of a big deal. And I have five! I did not include any mascaras though, as I do use up several every year.
Dior Addict Lipstick in 561 Baby Rose (review and swatches)
I loved this lipstick so much and I would re-purchase it, however, Dior re-launched this line, so I will have to look for a similar version. Barely there sheer pinks are my version of a nude lip, so I do end up using quite a lot of lip products like this.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose (review and swatches)
Another sheer pink, and another Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector empty. I have finished quite a lot of these during the years, both glosses and
To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit. So here are the ones I wore last week…
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)
I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade. Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly. This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip swatch)
Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.
This is my ultimate
Love it or hate it, but VDay is this weekend. For me this is a very special day, as on 14th of February I wrote my first feature for Makeup4all. And it was 7 years ago! Time flies…
But back to the beauty releases. Here are some that are worth your attention. Of course, you can always get anything from any new collection but these were created just for the Valentine’s Day.
Bobbi Brown Brown Red and Pink Collection. There are lip glosses, nail polishes and lipsticks in red and pink. Above you can see Rich Lip Colors (£20) in Ibiza Pink and Blazing Red. You can get these from Selfridges and Nordstrom.
Being a rose fanatic, I wouldn’t mind getting this for myself, ha! Diptyque Eau Rose Roll-On limited edition (available from Space NK for £65 and $150 from Neiman Marcus for 100 ml). The notes are: Bergamot, Lychee, Rose, Cedar, Musk. The print for this LE was created by Olympia Le-Tan.
Lush always bring out a collection to celebrate love. I like the look of
If you liked Makeup4all Facebook page , you could see some of the looks from SS16 Fashion Weeks. I have actually also posted about the hottest seasonal trend at my Mode account, too. (Can you guess what it is?)
Speaking of SS, you gotta love those early previews of the Spring 2016 makeup collections. And here are a few which I’ve spotted on Instagram.
